Great to be included in Mind Your Head Radio’s – Show 6 Part 1 all Female/Women Artists. Thanks to Chas (aka Captain Paranoid ) who gave an exclusive play to an acoustic version of my ‘White Poppies’ song, recorded for a video soundtrack, of banner making for Processions 2018 Cardiff.
The show is available to listen back on www.mixcloud.com/chas-mulcock/
Playing a wide selection of uptown world influenced organic roots grooves and timeless razor sharp punky funky country blues, the show goes out on live on mixlr.com/captain-paranoid
Part 1 of Women Artists on Mind Your Head Radio also included tracks from Patti Smith, Lucinda Williams and more – Chas is also giving air time and support to local Wales based musicians and emerging talent- Holidays in The Mind, Rufus Mufasa Gwenifer Raymond, Sarah McCreadie and more.
I was inspired to write ‘White Poppies’ after seeing 100 Years of Women’s Banners at Abergavenny Museum. I have had the absolute joy of performing a live collaboration version of the song with Welsh Literary Hip Hop Activist Rufus Mufasa’s album launch and last week at an event at Chapter Art’s Centre Fur Coats from the Lion’s Den.
We will be work-shoping the song to take it to studio.. so watch this space. Check out her amazing award-winning album
It was an incredible day at Processions 2018 Cardiff and an honour to have ‘White Poppies’ used in the soundtrack to the banner making. Below is a photo of the banner – made by Inroads Stitch Group ( Mel Hobday ) and myself at Processions 2018, amazing women, amazing day.
